Broccoli Salad

8 slices bacon (I usually use a pound, we love bacon!)
2 heads fresh broccoli, chopped
1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 large red onion, chopped
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/8 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and crumble.
In a large bowl, combine broccoli, cheese, bacon and onion.
Prepare the dressing in a small bowl by whisking together the red wine vinegar, sugar, pepper, salt, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Combine dressing with salad. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

I just found your blog. This is exactly how I made my broccoli salad, and for the same reason. WE LOVE BACON. Go LDS!
